Hello,

I have a file structure like:

a main folder\many sub folders\excel files. What i need to do is to loop through all sub folders and if a sub folder name has "waiting" as part of its name, then open all excel files in it.

can someone please help me with this line of code, the underlined part is wrong and needs correction

Do While Not SubFolder = "" and not SubFolder.name contains "waiting"

thank you so much in advance.

When did Power Query debut in Excel?
Although it was an add-in in Excel 2010 & Excel 2013, Power Query became a part of Excel in 2016, in Data, Get & Transform Data.
